The Artist

Carlos Amorales

Multi-media artist Carlos Amorales takes influences from his Mexican heritage, popular culture and modern conceptual art to create his unique vision. He’s worked in a wide range of formats, including: video, animation, vector drawing, performance art, collage, printing, painting, installation, sculpture and line drawing. He’s known for collaborating with other artists outside his genre, including graphic designers and musicians. Born in Mexico City in 1970, Amorales began his career with studies in Europe in the 1990s. This included stints at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy and the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. He felt confined by the traditions of the art establishment and sort out ways to free himself from the conventions of any particular form. He used performance art to break out of these structures, which in turn informed his work in the other mediums. One of his most well-regarded works is a piece of performance art using the popular culture of Mexico as a means of delivering his message. Created in 2001, the project was renowned across the globe and depicted people engaged in Mexican-style wrestling, wearing masks showing Amorales’ facial characteristics. As well as being a member of the National System of Art Creators in Mexico, he is also lecturers in art in Amsterdam.
